Beautiful white sandy beaches, beautiful emerald waters, beautiful bronzed people... this delightful Italian island is a striking model on the global catwalk and holidays to Sardinia send visitors wild with excitement.
And the best remedy for all that excitement? A week or two relaxing on the pristine beaches of Sardinia; it's just what the doctor ordered.
The island of Sardinia lies in the warm waters of the Mediterranean, some way off the “knee” of Italy's famous boot. It is famed for its gorgeous white beaches, tempting clear waters, glitzy resorts, and for luring the glitterati of the celebrity world, who flock here every summer.
Families and couples will adore Sardinia and the choice of holidays that the island offers. Check prices with TravelSupermarket now to discover when your island adventure can begin.
The island enjoys a long bake during summer, with temperatures rising from the mid twenties between May and October. Expect hot days and warm nights in July and August, though the winds that cross the island keep the heat at bay. Winter can be pleasant, at around 12C, though the nights can be quite cool. The island also sees rainfall during winter - there's a reason it's so lush.
Sa Sartiglia; February: This is a spectacular carnival in which brave masked horsemen compete in Oristano in an ancient game.
St George's Day; April 23: The Sardinians celebrate St George too and horseback processions and religious processions make the day one to remember.
The festival of Sant'Efisio; May: One of the most important cultural events of the year, the festival centres around a mass colourful religious procession where locals wear traditional costumes to honour Efisio di Elia, a martyred saint who the islanders began to revere during the terrible plague in the 1650s. (He was beheaded on the island in 303 for refusing to deny his Christian faith.)
